moxiegirl flashback!

illustrations by don anderson

found this awesomely hilarious moxiegirl cosmic/comic/fashion spread (circa 1995ish?) last time i was at my parent's house. it's fully equipped with all the sunny halter tops, cargo pants, and surfer girl tees that defined the 90's skater girl look of the time.

in this little comic, two blond martian gals invade the planet earth to get some "bitchin' clothes" from moxiegirl and hook up with a studly mannequin! click on the pics to read the speech bubbles.

totally



i know this is way over the top, but i simply couldn't resist. i had this doll when i was younger, but my parents thought i needed more dolls that looked like me, so mine was the hispanic version, teresa. she was my favorite barbie ever! Even after i chopped off all her hair, dyed it blue, and she started looking more like ani difranco, i kept her and wouldn't give her away. i think when i left for college, my parents found her in my closet and finally threw her away. tears. anyway, this sugary sweet madness goes to you petsugar

these are amazing, and hilarious comic books gushing tales of female drama
